Outside feels warm,
she grabs a book.
makes her feel shook.
Some cool water
to comfort fears,
but loud thunder
sounded so near.
She leaps up high,
then sits back down,
her drink supply
did not touch ground.
An empty glass
rests in her hand,
while liquid mass
never does land.
To her dismay
it floats on by,
hunts clouds away
to clear the sky.
Heart beats so calm,
while mind feels shock,
within her palm
great gifts unlock.
